Jordyn… The birth of a baby is typically a life altering experience, but it is greatly magnified when the doctor tells you that your new baby has Down Syndrome. In the midst of this realization, we chose to believe that she would accomplish all that the doctors said she never would. Our search for help led us to Achievement Academy. There we found people who saw the potential in our child and worked lovingly and diligently to bring out the best in her. It is an extremely supportive environment where independence is encouraged.

Achievement Academy’s motto is “We believe, they achieve.” Just as this school believes, Jordyn continues to achieve. She is walking, communicating and getting ready for “real” kindergarten very soon!
